Survey of products with nanosized pigments


- Focusing on products exempt from the Danish Nanoproduct Register

The main focus of the study is on paints, wood preservatives, glues and fillers, as well as on coloured textiles.  The survey contributes to the overview of consumer products with nanomaterials on the Danish market. In addition, the project aims at discussing whether and which pigments may be considered nanomaterials according to the definition of "nanomaterial" recommended by the European Commission. This is done based on an initial mapping of pigments on the EU market.

Based on discussions with stakeholders, including trade organisations and industry, it is concluded that most pigments are likely candidates to be nanomaterials.
